of the candidates has action belittle the issue. mitt romney and his acceptance speech at republican national convention actually purported to make fun of president obama for ever having expressed any issue in the rising oceans and the state of the help of the planet. i think it is significant that the of one presidential candidates who just refers to the issue sarcastically, as it is not really an issue. or is president obama, whether you like him or don't like him, has taken some of the steps during his presidency to address this issue. after all, he did back the cap and trade legislation that passed the house of representatives in 2009, although, and then died in the senate in 2010 as a result of the republican opposition. >> i wish i could play for you some of the comments of mitt romney and also president obama in the debate. as you said, never once in the three debates was clima change mentioned or global warming. neither by the candidates nor by our colleagues in the press. the did not find it important enough to ask a question about global warming. i cannot play the clubs because our

and new york state which is seen as safe for obama. mainly for scheduling purposes, i wouldn't expect to see either romney or obama in new hampshire or virginia again, and here's the rule of thumb in this is that for the president, good government is good politics and it would have been counter productive if he was out at a rally today because would still be a storm backlash. these events that romney and paul ryan have dealing with storm relief, that is a compromise between having a formal campaign event and going, just canceling the whole day of events and it's a delicate line and everyone has to be treading this close to the election in the wake of such an enormous disaster. >> singing the president's praises and how he's handling this, his toughest critic governor chris christie, take a listen. >> he deserves great credit. yesterday, personally, three times, he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely means it. >> so, perry, do you think this helps the president? he does have a real role here. mitt romney doesn't. >> i don
